Sony Xperia 1 IV Coming Soon
Sony is preparing to launch a new smartphone, which carries the name Sony Xperia 1 IV. Sony’s upcoming flagship phone could offer an even better selfie camera. The fourth-generation Sony Xperia 1 will feature a small bezel at the top, which will house the device’s front camera.
Overall, the Sony Xperia 1 IV is not much different from the Xperia 1 III which is officially released in 2021. A secret tip reveals that the smartphone will have dimensions of 164.7 x 70.8 x 8.3mm and a total thickness of 9.5mm.

The Sony Xperia 1 IV has a 6.5-inch screen, which is the same as the Xperia 1 III. It’s an OLED display that comes with another 21:9 aspect ratio, like the one on the previous Xperia 1. Sony eschewed the Quad HD+ trend, and headed straight for 4K resolution on its flagship smartphones so this is to be expected on the Xperia 1 IV.
The phone’s display has a 120Hz refresh rate and support for HDR, although the Xperia 1 IV is said to have a 50% brighter display than its predecessor and Real-time HDR drive support.
